Ocean Riviera


Hugh Taylor Birch’s son-in-law, Chicago native Arthur T. Galt, sold the last stretch of pristine beach between Palm Beach and Miami to Coral Ridge Properties, Inc. in 1953, forty years after he bought it. After overseeing a modest proliferation of small hotels and beach clubs, they built Edgewater Arms in 1959, a cooperative that set the template and tempo for the Galt Mile’s development. Coral Ridge Properties, Inc. hired Architect Richard C. Reilly to design a model high-end community to rival Bal Harbour, Worth Avenue and Lincoln Road that they planned to develop until they sold it to Westinghouse in 1965. In 1969, Westinghouse selected one of Reilly’s best architectural efforts to use as the blueprint for several buildings - the Ocean Riviera, the Regency Tower and Regency South. Despite minor variations, the design simplicity of the “three sisters” yielded large thick-walled rooms, efficient plumbing and electric systems and optimal utilization of deck parking and garage space. Today, these design gems are some of the Galt Mile’s best!
